In the early days Mt. Vernon was a very important river port. Flatboats dotted the river from New Orleans to Pittsburg. Products of every description were transported on these crafts, the most common being lum- ber. For some unaccountable reason, prob- ably because of its shipping location, Mt. Vernon became the noted center for cooper shops. Common belief has it that hoop- poles themselves were grown in great abundance in this county. Instead they were shipped here from regions farther south to be made into barrels. This coop- THE COLISEUM ering industry flourished about seventy years ago. The common custom upon both the Ohio and Mississippi rivers in those days was for all boats passing to hail each other and to find out the other's business. People along the shore would so hail the passing boats. Whenever a ilatboat bound for or away from Posey County hailed, this conversation followed: "Where ye from"? "Hoop-pole County, Indeeanief' "Whatche got on board ?" "Hoop-poles and dried punkins." I MAIN ST.-BEFORE THE OAKLAND CITY GAME Seven New 1 ' fi. n ' W fig.. ll PORTALS-NEW HI This became so common that "I-Ioop-pole County, Indeeanieu was known everywhere in the United States. In the midst of this period of coopering prosperity occurred a fight between the coopers of Mt. Vernon and a low class of river men landing at this port. It was a com- mon event for these rufiians to go into the town and to tear things up in general. The peaceful citizens, tired of this "bullying" element of peo- ple, united to drive them out. Armed with hoop- poles and barrel staves they encountered the riv- ermen and a battle royal ensued. The boatmen were finally beaten and in great haste they em- barked and went down the river. They pre- sented a sorry looking aspect and upon inquiry as to their plighted condition they would reply that "they are a rough set at Mt. Vernon." Unfortunately the fame of this episode has spread with the fame of the hoop- poles. "Hoop-pole" is now used with respect and tribute, rather than with shame.

V. H. S.---OUR IDEAL Mt. Veruon's various high schools have followed the course or nature, at first like the creeping worm, then the gay butterfly. since Mt. Vernon has been large enough to have a secondary education system, more have been four high schools. Each has been bigger and better than the pre- ceding one, The iirst Mt. Vernon high school was erected in 1870, at the site where Central Building now stands .... And was affectionately called "Old Cen- tral '. Rather plain in appearance-a di- mlnutive building when thought of in the terms of today, one with classes in few subjects and taught by a. small faculty . . . this was the sum total of the activi- UOLD CENTRALVY ties of the time. There was no frenzied shouting at athletic contests, there was no school paper, no annual, no social organi- zation, ostensibly at least, with their various pursuits. Although in these quiet stages the "spirit of M. V. H. S." was operating. An old grad says "Plus poetic quam humane locutus es"- perhaps we "have spoken more poetically than hu- manly", but it has been very little exaggerated on our part. But as with other things, "Old Central" outlived its usefulness. The Senior classes no longer consisted of only live to twelve students-so a new building took its place. This structure was the Main Street school. However it did not supply the needs long, as it was not much larger than its predecessor. It served from 1887 to 1896. Then came the third high school. This was heralded as one of the best in the state at the time of its dedication-it was to the city what the present High is. Erected at a cost of 517,000 at the corner of College Avenue and Fifth Street, it presented an imposing view . . . "gingerbread" it was said. Built in Gothic style, with its towers, turrets, and arched portals-it well deserved the ten- der, loving epithet of the "Old Castle".

A """""G "THE NEW CASTLE" Ten Quo ..2g. . tzx..-f L.--"' It had one large auditorium and nine class rooms--and with the larger build- ing came sports and a few organizations of the 90's . . . the fin de siecle . . . passed trom the calendar. From the first the spirit of M. V. H. S. had been apparent. Now it began to blossom-it began to enter into the life of the M. V. H. S. student. More than book learn- ing he carried away now when he grad- uated: he was in an atmosphere of com- radeship, of being someone. The "Old Castle" was a long time in passing into the limbo of undesirables -but finally the State Board of Educa- tion determined that it no longer could satisfy the needs of the twentieth cen- tury . . . so plans were begun to re- place the building that the students had , - cared for so long. The Mt. Vernon MAIN1.I?ERSIg3Ff:IlJ1SgHP??L school board eschewed anything that would not be the best in the educational world. But we will not here go into de- tail ot the midnight oil they burned planning its type, its equipment, the means of financing it. Let it sufiice to say that money was not copious, but the Board in its masterly way finally got the building under way, and the impressive "New Castle" of Tudor-Gothic design is the result. This article was not written to pass ecomiums on the city, or to give a eulogy of the school board-but the Hoop-Pole ot' this year cannot ignore the mighty spirit with which M. V. H. S. has been en- dowed. Although the present high school system has at times been discussed with asperity, there can be no doubt that the recitation system where the students can clarify their notions by filtration through the minds of others, their comradeships with each other, that the high school of today is a permanent quality. As has been said the Hoop-Pole of '29 can not ignore the "spirit of M. V. H. S." In order to appreciate this spirit it is necessary to understand what it really is . . . what is it? Is it that which impels a wild-eyed student body to scream, PRESENT CENTRAL SCHOOL Eleven 4,4- J il? 1 .fi . . 5 '11-iz:- "ABE" BURLISON+ Janitor for 24 Years To Head Pilot a X L "Win the county tourney"? In a way, this is but the ebullitiong however, somewhat small .... The true "spirit of M. V. H. S." is that which causes the students and graduates of the "Castles" to be true to themselves and true members of society in which they are placed. Soldier, statesman, scientist, it matters not . . . the part is a minor thingg each is an old "grad". M. V. H. S. does not consist of stone buildings, but of the students which constitute the school. M. V. H. Sis spirit is eternal! Long after the present buildings have crumbled away, and the children of the students of today have passed into history the "spirit of M. V. H. will survive. The school that taught-"It matters not whether we win or lose, but how we play the game"- its spirit must be great. It is altogether fitting and right that the Hoop-Pole of '29 embody as its ideal-"The Spirit of M. V. H. S." Cabin Clerks To Ship Captain DORIS LIMBERGER CATHERINE HOGAN Twelve f x SHIP CAPTAIN M. N. O'BANNON Superintendent The success of an institution rests largely upon the shoulders of the superin- tendent. In his power is intrusted the fulfillment of our dreams of a bigger, bet- ter school. In writing of Mr. O'Bannon, one almost has to lapse into a panegyr- ic. . .Mr. O'Bannon, indeed, has labored untiringly to develop the Mount Vernon High School and to bring it to its present status. The new High School is a flttlng memento of the work for which he will be always remembered. Without inspira- tion, nothing could be accomplishedg all the world would be drab. But above the horizon of our lives comes the inspiration, the hope, and the faith of one who keeps himself in the mind of every M. V. I-I. S. student as one who is ever working for our good-it is our loving superintendent, Mr. O'Bannon.

SI-IEILA BILLUPS Withdrew FCC' . . fag. .,f""" CLASS HISTORY Introduction Now a baron-in fact an "Earl"-ruled at the "Old Castle" in 1926. He had not ruled very long, but already he had many meek subjects. But suddenly there came to his ears the distant rumble of conflict from Junior High land. A horde of bar- barians, the like of which had never been seen before were being let loose from the hill and were descending upon the school. The "class of '29" it was said in whispers. But Earl was crafty and made ready for the invasion. The van guard hit the castle that December, but Earl wished to con- quer all so he did not mete out punishments to them . . . but I 1. In the mighty month of September--Everett Alldredge's birth month- Earl, the baron, saw a Vast horde of 110 descending upon him--a great event. 2. And the heavens were dark, and the thunder thundered, and the rain fell even in bucketfuls on that day. 3. And Earl did name them Freshmen, to be so called by all men-and he placed them under many other rulers, called teachers. 4. Now Earl, the baron, was taxed to his utmost in subduing the barbarians . . . and he cried out grievously. 5. And he lifted up his eyes and saw George Ashworth, Christopher Wilder- man, Robert Green, and others equally as great: would it not make anyone trem- ble? 6. All the boys did take Biology and they waxed strong in wisdom-Edwin Hartmann did split the tongue of a crow, hearing that the beautiful bird would then speak in the tongue of a human. 7. And verily I say unto you, all the students did then jeer and nod their heads significantly at the Wonderful One. 8. Whereupon Edwin did become wroth and eloquent, and did so revile Charles Hornick that Charles has nevergrown in stature since. 9. And then whereupon Norman Knoop, a friend of Charles', did smite Edwin on the organ of smell, causing it to change form slightly. 10. For which Norman was presented with many branches of the oak tree S 13 fwhereof I shall not speakj which abound- ' f lp ed so in the land. ,,, W II I 1 s. 1. Now they were no longer called I Freshmen, but rather Sophomores. l K N 2. And in English, there was a Teacher -Jig 'I who still doth teach, so I will not explain '1 jr- if her name. 12 1, 3. Verily I say unto you, she did so like Tigre.--Q-4T'g'E,, the work of Donald Flesher, Bertha Gra- hert, and Jolm H. Leffel that she did make them rewrite their themes so she might again enjoy correcting them. Twenty-seven 090' i' 7 l +4 ' 4. Whereat the class did appreciate the humor of the situation, and were amused. A., 9 9 5. And in Latin there was another ' Teacher--Whereas Shamgar slew hundreds rg with an ox-goad she slew thousands with 5 her sarcasm. 6. But one day John Robert Moeller, I, called "Logic" by all men, perpetrated a. X witticism which excited the risibility of that Marvelous One. 7. Her tongue became dreadful, even as the color of blood-and she began fire upon him. S. To reprint her words here would cause instantaneous combustion, so I will refrain. 9. One look, nay fiery glance from her brunette eyes, and the rash "Logic" did fall writhing in anguish. 10. And all this came to pass while they were Sophomores. III 1. Now after they were Sophomores, they were Juniors. 2. And their bright and shining light will always be held up before the other Juniors and their children forever and ever . . . and while Juniors Algebra III was offered. 3. And in Algebra they had a Teacher. 4. Now this Teacher looked with favor upon Ella Whipple, Lenora. Hockman, Mary Alexander, Aaron Robb, and Alfred Wallace. 5. For she spake unto them and said, "Behold, I have received from you no problems which have been solved inaccurately . . . And, verily I say unto you, that I have not received any which have been solved accurately." 6. And great was the wonder thereat and the favored ones did reason among themselves, saying, "How can this be true?" 7. But as all may see, it can easily be true. 8. For some did not take Algebra III. IV 1. And now SENIORS they were called far and wide! 2. And as SENIORS they were dignity personified . . . they did take Eco- nomics . . . and study "Bill" Shakespeare. 3. In Economics there were many debates. 4. Genella Dawson and Pansy Utley did oppose Anna Russell and Catherine Williams one day in spirited appeals therein. 5. So James Short was made judge. 6. While they were debating, Pansy did look kindly upon him who was to decide the fate of them all. - 7. Whereupon James did speak, . "Those optics get my 'goat'. I have ' heart trouble." 1 8. Pansy's side did win. 9. And Ruth Regina Hall, common- ly known as "Small" did faint. 10. But now the SENIORS approach- the end of their careers. 11. Teachers weep. 12. The tears, however, are tears of joy. 13 . So we pass away. 14. Now may the grace of the SEN- IORS and the example of their diligence be before you, O Juniors. Sophomores, and Freshmen, now and forever. Amen . . . Selah.

Vernon High, that due to the continual writing of mushy love notes between the two sexes, and also be- cause of the necklng that goes on the minute the di- rector's back is turned, he found it necessary to have two orchestras, one for the girls and one for the boys. The girls objected, but the boys seem willing. So the boy's orchestra will advance in its career without the as- sistance of the girls for their necklng either.J The boys plan as the first program "Mama, Mama, Pin a Rose on Me"--"Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater"- "You Chase Me, and I'll Chase You"-and "Rocka- bye, Baby". This came as a. surprise, because last week the School Board decided that dancing would be permlssable--not only that, but even compul- sory. At the present time, the Board is somewhat irate because at the first school dance only eighty-nine per cent of the school was pres- ent. So this week a course in "Dancing" has been put in the school curriculum, hav- ing as its teacher, Miss Mil- dred Bradley and the best boy dancer in the school, Charles Hornick. Time and time again the Board tried to get the stu- dents to offer to go to school dances, but always they said NA SH PAYS THE PENALTY FOR DEATH OF TWO "I didn't mean to give such t 0 u g h assignments" said Mr. Nash yesterday on the gallows as he rolled his glass eye around in the socket, placed his wooden leg firmly on the gallows floor, and re-adjusted his false teeth. This announcement came as the result of several trag- ical episodes. Malcolm Abell, noted High School scholar, made a final fatal attempt to prepare for a test assign- ment last week. But our much-beloved and now be- mourned friend never took the test, for he broke his neck studying. At once the teacher who was so cruel to assign so hard a test was sought out, and of course it happened to be Prof. Nash of the high school faculty. This has not been the only tragedy because of hard as- signments. Last week Robert G-reen, favorite of all teach- ers swallowed his tongue in a brave attempt to pro- nounce the didicult word, Ahuramazdabilllleozd, t o r Mr. Nash. Hardly having strength enough to straighten his tin ear Mr. Nash's last words were: "Never will I again burden my students with hard assignments". This is probably true, because a mo- ment later the trap was swung. that they did not care for them. At last the Board seems successful, and for next week's dance they have secured the hot "Faculty" Foot Warmers to play at the affair. This orchestra led by FLINN SAYS KNIFE NEVER LOVED HIM3 "NO DATES" BULLETIN ! Detecting a powerful sul- phuric acid solution in his coffee this morning, Floyd Flinn has left home-and now resides in the basement of the house. "Life is intol- erable"! he said in a state- ment to the press this morn- ing. Cruelty, non-support, and the extravagance of Mrs. Mary Alice Flinn, well- known student at Evansville College, were reasons given by Floyd Flinn, devoted spouse, for their separation in the famous suit now be- fore the court. The couple were married in December, 1928. Accord- ing to Mr. Flinn the tlrst rift in their marital life oc- curred when Mrs. Flinn re- fused his request that his allowance be raised to flfty cents a. week. But Mrs. Flinn says "This was impossible and Floydie knows it" . . . "I have been diligently sav- ing all winter to buy me a new fur coat, and to think he would broach such a sub- ject . . . Why, I should be the one to object"! "Had I k n o w n Mrs. Flinn's true character be- fore our marriage, I never would have taken the fatal step. She treated me cruelly, often refusing to let me have dates with Miss Catherine Howard and Miss Miriam Wilson--two girl friends," said Mr. Flinn with a catch in his voice. Residents in the vicinity of the Flinn household re- port often hearing violent quarrels at all times of the day.

SMOOT'S BED- TIME STORY FOR Tl-IE KIDDIES AND MORONS Prof. Smoot was in the World War . . . and the Prof. was so thoroughly worn out by the War that he has become childish, and in this stage of second child- hood has taken up the vile but harmless habit of telling bed-time stories. Read on Cif you can stand ity The Ugly Princess Once upon a time there was a princess named Mag- gie. Maggie was a very good princess, and she had never told a lie nor smoked a cig- arette, so nobody liked her much. At the time Maggie was very ugly. She had beauti- ful hats, but her face was like an unfolded nightmare. She wore satin slippers, but her foot left tracks like a. land grant railroad. However, Maggie had a. pure, white heart, with a. wonderful white cardiac ori- fice and white corpuscles. She helped her mother with the dishes, she knew how to sew, she was always gay and polite to her old father, and when she sang, she sounded like a battery of Field Artil- lery. Now the King, Maggie's father of course was no- body's fool: and while he loved his daughter as only a. father could, still he began to worry when she passed her thirtieth birthday with- out a suitor. So he read up the Training Regulations on how to get rid of daughters in two counts. The first prob- lem was to find the two Counts. The Regulations stated that the way to do was to have a contestg to have a tourney or announce open season on a wild boar, and to award, as prize for the winner, his daughter's hand. Now it came to pass about this time that a scaly dragon was on maneuvers about the neighborhood. This dragon had scales enough to weigh a ton tractor, and he breath- ed fire through his mouth and smoke through his nose: furthermore he was on a.

I call her dand- ruff, she's always on my neck. PROF. SMO0T'S BED- TIME STORY FOR THE KIDDIES AND MORONS lContinued From Page 25 diet of children and fair maidens for dinner. Married women roamed about in comparative security, and the dragon passed them up like cold potatoes. Here, thought the King, was a noble opportunity, to im- prove living conditions for fair maidens, and at the same time to marry his most unhandsome daughter and a decree, not to mention an edict and an ofllcial manifes- to that whosoever should kill that dragon, dead or alive, should have his daugh- ter's hand and all the rest of her for that matter. He pub- lished this edict in flve par- agraphs, and broadcasted it by distribution. No sooner had the news been spread than all the men threw a w ay their spears. The Dragon walked around town and picked out the tenderest maidens that he could find. at will, he had them boiled, stewed, and on the half shell. All the bachelors in the kingdom grew very fond of the Drag- on. called him by his pet name "Al", and helped him scout around for good. Then to cap the climax, Princess Maggie went out one day and slew the dragon. This was on her thirty-first birthday, and it nearly killed her poor old father. After a week of mourning, the King called together his counsellors and elders and spoke to them in this wise, "Hear, O ye elders, and hearken, ye counsellors" how can we inveile some- one in t o marrying this daughter? The elders admit- ted they were stumped, and the counsellors could not find an approved solution. Finally the King thought of a happy scheme, he wrote a check for one million and no hundredths dollars, placed it on his daughter's back with four thumb tacks, and declared that any man brave enough to fill his name in the check should marry the Princess. It worked like magic, and when the Princess took her morning walk all the noble- men lined up behind her, like a snake dance after the Navy game. Some had indel- ible pencils, some had foun- tain pens, some had rubber stamps, and half a dozen carried portable typewriters, by noon the Princess looked like a city directory: the check was one big blot of ink, there were names on the check, on her shirt-waist, and on her petticoat. The line stretched for miles and she had not even passed through the Genesis yet. Such popularity, thought her father, must be deserved By sundown, the Princess was weak. Furthermore she had been stabbed by so many fountain pens that she con- tracted blood poisoning, and was about to die. To save her from this sad fate, be- cause she was so pure and good, a kind fairy came along and changed her into a double eagle. And the double eagle used to sit in the palace window all day long and sing two songs at once. So the old King was very happy, and wondered why he hadn't thought of lt before. That, little boys and girls, is why you must mind moth- er, and must never say naughty words to your nice school teachers. E. Owen Alldredge 1Graduate of M. V. H. S.

As Amos Beehive Meadowgrass of Solitude Tech has said "A SCHOOL FOR HE-MEN". l i ed, Mrs. Flinn seemed the possessor of a violent tem- per-many times heard to stamp on the floor and shriek at the top of her voice "Heck, Heck". Such profan- ity naturally offended the meek Mr. Flinn, sometimes actually driving him to drink and stay out all night, according to reports given by him. U p o n questioning, Mr. Flinn was found to be un- usually reticent. The most valuable information to be wrested from him was that he thought that he was jus- tified in asking for a divorce, because she never really loved him. "Why," he said, "she would never lay her head on my shoulder be- cause she said her hair didn't match my suit". As the case now stands, Mrs, Flinn will not divorce her husband, fearing if such action were taken, he would not then be taken care of properly and . . . he might start hanging around other girls! But Mrs. Flinn is of Scotch descent. It is said she never Worked the "horizon- tal" on cross word puzzles, because she hated to "come across".

VERNON HIGH SCH,OOL'S ORCHESTRA under the direc- sr tion of Miss Helen Bruner, has had a very successful year. x The orchestra participated in many of the school activi- ties. It rendered several beautiful yet difficult selections Dedication Day and during the performance of the Footlight Performers. The operetta, "The Pirate's Daughter," was un- usually well rendered due to the splendid accompaniment of the orchestra. At the Baccalaureate Services and Commencement Exercises the orchestra again dis- tinguished itself. ' During the year several members were asked to play in the All Sectional Orchestra of Evansville. This is the first time in the history that such an honor was awarded to any of its members. Several members of the orchestra will graduate this year, but their vacancies will be iilled by members from the Junior Orchestra. su Forty v l iff., fs--f ..z8. . y -14' " M1-,gf' BAND First Row-Esto Eilert, John Ramsey Walters, Alfred White, Elvis Gentil.

VERNON HIGH SCHOOL has one of the best bands in 3? Southern Indiana. Only a few of the mainstays from the old 5, band were left from last year. At present the band is com- posed chiefly of underclassmen and under the very able super- vision of Mr. Dragoo of Princeton, they have developed stu- pendously during the past year. It is not an easy task to de- velop rhythm and harmony in an organization of this kind but Mr. Dragoo has done so very well. Many of the boys still take private lessons. The Band has played for basketball games and as a climax to their work of the year, they were very outstanding at the County Tournament held in the new gym. With the combining of the schools they were provided with better facilities with which to work. Shall we give three cheers for the present Band and all future Bands? RAH! RAH! RAH!

The Glee Club spent the lirst semester in training and , cultivating voices under the direction of Miss Bruner. In wthe second semester many more voices were added and the two clubs-girls and boys-carried on their work together. Much progress was made and they sang for the dedication of the new building, took part in the oper- etta and at the Commencement. ss Forty-two Of!!! 0.25. . f BOYS' GLEE CLUB First Row-Robert Soden, Charles McDaniel, Kenneth White, Charles Hor- nick, Robert Caldemeyer, Herschel Aud.

Under the direction of Miss Brunler, it made excellent progress during the year. It sang at the Dedication Services and in junction with the Girls' Glee Club put on the operetta. "The Plrate's Daugh- ter". Toward the end ofthe semester with the joining of Junior and Senior Highs the membership was augmented some fifty voices. This aided a great deal in the pep and usefulness of the club. Forty-three Hsu- ' ' Ng .

A necromancer from India is engaged to put the guests to sleep. They wish to dream themselves back in Old Holland three hundred years before. The necromancer casts his spell, putting them to sleep. Act II opens with the same characters, transferred to Leydenkirk, Holland, in the year 1624. It is built around the character of Jacqueline, a dashing and flirtatious girl. One day after a storm she was found unconscious on the beach by the Burgomaster, and taken into his home. Comic and dramatic situations fol- low each other rapidly during two scenes. 'Phe first scene opens with the birth- day celebration in honor of the Burgomaster. A sailor, Schmidt, warns the Burgo- master and Peter, Prefect of Police, that a brigantine which anchored in the har- bor the night before, is a pirate ship, believed to be commanded by the notorious Captain La Rue, Pirate Chief. The Burgomaster and Peter plan a clever trap for the pirates. Jaqueline and Willberg assist the pirates, who break into the Burgo- master's house, carrying off the chest supposed to contain the town funds in gold. At the pirates' rendezvous, Scene 2, the pirates open the chest and find the Burgomaster inside. Police arrive, overcome the pirates, Jaqueline is found to be the Pirate Chief's Daughterg and on condition that they will never set foot on Dutch soil again, they are set free. .

UCH OF THE PEP at the athletic contests was furnished X by the High School Drum Corps. Although only two years in existence it gained recognition as one of the best in the tri- tate. Miss Miriam Wilson was the corps sponsor and much of its success is due to her. Marian Powell Was the peppy little drum major with the strut. The drum corps had prac- tically the same personnel as it did have last year, so all the members were ex- perienced. All will be back next year, which denotes that an even better drum corps is in the making. M. V. H.

HI-Y CLUB THE HI-Y CLUB is one of the finest organizations of the school with its purpose of maintaining and spreading clean speech, clean athletics, clean living, and clean scholarship. Under the sponsorship of Mr. Pence, Athletic Coac11, and its president, Charles Hornick, it has excellent progress although it has been compelled to make new by-laws, and amend the constitution because of the disap- pearance of the other one. It showed its support to the football team by the famous Pow-Wow which took place at the Athletic Field on the night before the first home game. The real work of the Hi-Y, however, was not of this type-molding characters was its cri- terion, and from this the school deserves greatest benefit. The membership was increased by tive and these added a great deal to the usefulness of the club.

THE HOOP-POLE ,Y VERY DAY questions such as "When does the HOOP-POLE come out?"-"How is the annual progressing?" . . . are tasked the editor. For the "HOOP-POLE" is an integral part of M. V. H. S. and the student body is interested in it. This year the class of '29 selected as the HOOP-POLE Editor, Everett All- dredge. Ruth Hall, was in turn selected Business Manager. Miss Mildred Brad- ley served as faculty advisor. To the Business Managers this year goes a great' deal of credit. This ofiice is a very diflicult one to till and not every one can take charge of it as it should be done. Yet "Reg" and her assist- ants this year secured more money through the business department than has ever been secured before. This enabled the staff to do sev- eral things that had heretofore been impossible. Also a great deal of credit belongs to Miss Bradley . . . she knew the technical side of the question and when the staff was slacking in the work done, she was always there to see that things came off smoothly. Fifty I ? ' r fd X f l 5 I1-,,.a-1' The class of '29 naturally thinks the 1929 HOOP- 1 POLE the "best ever". Realizing that the high school annual should he a true reflection, they have tried to put more of the high school life into its contents. For the first time a central theme was run through the book.

TORIALLY SPEAKING, one of the most important activities of a school is its paper. All schools do not have papers but a large percentage do. Mt. Vernon - - High School is 0116 that does. The Hoop-Pole Junior was started in the year 1919 by a Journalism Class and has been published ever since. It is the only school paper in Posey County, and M. V. H. S. should be proud that it has one. The paper of any school works to create and maintain a better school spirit and to hold high the ideals of the school it represents. The Hoop-Pole Jr. is work- ing toward these two aims in Mt. Vernon High School, just as the motto says, "All for the honor and glory of the school." The paper acts as a medium of exchange. By sending the Hoop-Pole Jr. to several different schools, a number of papers are received in turn. By reading these papers it is possible to exchange ideas with the other schools and see What they are doing about certain situations. ' Fifty-two w M .i w., 1.l11-'f The paper is perhaps the most widely known activity of the school. During the school year which has just come to a close, exchange papers were sent to high schools in Indiana., Illinois, and Kentucky, and by way of outside subscriptions, the Hoop-Pole Jr. reached Ohio, and Michigan. Thus the Hoop-Pole Jr. reached live states during the last yearg spreading the news ot M. V. H. S., the athletic teams, and other activities with it as it went. Dedicated to high school betterment with the motto-"All for the honor and glory of the school." The experience that one gets by working n the Hoop-Pole Jr. stat proves helpful in later years if one is interested in jo, rnalistlc work. By working on the school paper one gets all the preliminary fundamentals of making up a newspaper. One of the former editors of the Hoop-Pole Jr. who went to Indiana University became editor of "The Indiana Daily Student" in his senior year. Although the experience he gained as editor of the Hoop-Pole Jr. was not wholly responsible for this, it helped. Thus one may see that a school paper is a wonderful thing for a school to possess, and that M. V. H. S. is proud of its paper, the Hoop-Pole Jr. EDITORIAL STAFF Editor-in-Chief ............................ .T ...... Charles R. Hornlck Assistant Editor-- .................... ...........

But l1e is still sent on the most humiliating errands by his mother, and depends upon his father for the last nickel of spending money. Silly Bill fell in love with Lola the Baby-Talk Lady, a vapid if amiable little flirt. To woo her in a manner worthy of himself fand incidentally of herj he stole his fatl1er's evening clothes. When his wooings became a nuisance to the neighborhood, his mother stole the clothes back, and had them altered to lit the middle-aged form of her husband, thereby keeping William at h0lll6 in the evening. But when it came to the Baby-Talk Lady's good-bye dance, not to be present was unendurable. How William Sylvanus again got the dress suit, and how as he was wearing it at the party the negro servant, Genesis, disclosed the fact that the proud garment was in reality his fathers, are some of the elements in this charm- ing comedy of youth. Jane Baxter, little sister of Seventeen, could not leave his affairs alone and contributed much to the humor. The Parchers-victim's of Lolafs visit, had to contend with Willie, Johnnie, George, and Wallie, all afflicted with love-mania..

FOOTLIGHT PERFORMERS RAMATICS had its place in the school through the Footlight Per- formers, the most active of the clubs. With a membership .of twenty-five, later thirty-live, it presented to the public some six one-act plays which were well received. Miss Catherine Howard was the club sponsor, and she was the guiding light in this, the club's first year of existence. The clnb's greatest con- tribution was the purchase of the beautiful velour curtains for the windows of the auditorium and stage flood-lights. Plays given by the club were "The Maker of Dreams", casting Ella Whipple, Everett Alldredge, and Charles Hornickg "The Very Naked Boy", with Richard Caldemeyer, Marie Mann, and Otis Allyn: "The Whole Truth", having Martha Gonnerman, John Herbert Leffel, Ronald Niehaus, Lois Smith, Mary Lucile Vines, John Robert Moeller, Elizabeth Edmonds, Frank Fessenden, Jolm Hames in the roles, "Kilarney", with Catherine Williams, Genella Dawson, Helen Rose, Doris Schneider, Otis Allyng "Ghost Story", casting Mary Alexander, Harold Rothrock, Georgia Bauman, Carolyn Given, Frances Vines, Frank Fessenden, Herschel Aud, Kirk Holmes, Otis Allyng "Sauce for the Gos- 1ings", featuring Dorothy Grabert, Aaron Dunn, Guy Cleveland, Anna Russell, John Haines.

Maroon and White, May M. V. H. S. win forever-n And yet have this story the same: Mount Vernon's men In the struggle to win Stick to the rules of the game! Fifty-nine ,-, .-,. . . ATHLETICS M. V. H. S. pits its coaches against the world. Mt. Vernon's coaches have ' crashed through. This is not a eulogy . . .for athletics at M. V. H. S. was on a higher plane this season than last. Next year will see still better. Why? The coaches-fPENCE. . ."Eddie", our diminutive mentor, is one of the most popular that M. V. H. S. has ever had. lndiana Central star in football, bas- ketball, baseball and track, he came to Mt. Vernon in '27. This is the third year he has been here-and each year has shown an improvement in the type of athletics sent out by the Maroon and White. Good-natured, a builder of men, he well deserves the school's and com- COACH ALLGOOD munity's support. Pence, with charac- teristic views on how to play football, last season developed a strong pigskin aggregation, which while it lost most of its games, were by one touchdown margins rather than the six or seven of several former lean years. Next year, "Eddie" will reap the work on this year's team. In basketball, with. only one or two vets, Pence took a few juniors and several sophomores and turned out a iight- ing crew .... Little wonder that M. V. H. S. is proud of its athleti'c coach- Hail Pence! ALLGOOD--The girls' mentor's chief hobby is in producing championship teams. That he has a hobby in which he has done something can be seen by the teams of '25, '26, '28 and now this year, '29. A coach's real personality comes out in defeat. For years Mt. Vernon has been supreme in the realm of girls' basket- ball. It was easy for Coach Allgood to be praised, to praise. This year Mt. Vernon again had a good team, but a probable perfect record was ruined by injuries to the players necessitating the building of different combinations at times. . . through this Allgood came out with his same geniality-just ask the girls. A1- though the team this year was almost all seniors, leaving little nucleus for him with which to build-M. V. H. S. faces the future with optimism .... Trusting Allgood to again come through. FOOTBALL THE ascendency of football at M. V. H. S. this year was sharp- ly outlined against the sombre background in that many of these should have resulted in a win, another in a tie, credence to statements that they "feared the Mountaineers". I But last year five games were scheduled-hard ones l N against tough foes. Four of these resulted in defeats. One of these should have have resulted in a win, another in a tie . . . but breaks went the opposite way. So their record can- ' 5 ' J not show that. my Nor can the scorebook tell of their iight. Mt. Vernon's - Sixty 'Hue ..f?.j - XX ,f..5-'-'t-t. L-if teams have never betrayed their fighting tradition. Beaten V' 'i in previous years-yes, even buried under large scores, this af' season they tried hard to emerge from the mire . . . the rut. But the rut was deep-nearly six feet-so deep that it became E " 'J a grave. In spite of this a great schedule was arranged. Bosse .5 5 collected its reeling senses long enough to get a victory from argl the Pencemeng Boonville came from behind to win with a 's i trick play by a close marging Cakland City was trampled un- L der in the only home game after a rousing "Pow-wow" the night beforeg over-confidant, M. V. H. S. lost to an inferior Reitz teamg a fast Memorial team was nearly tied on a muddy field in what was one of the grittiest battles ever put up by a Mountaineer team. This is their record . . . and the school is proud of it. Dependability as well as versatility characterized their play all season--so Mt. Vernon looks for- ward to the '29 season next fall with a smile, well knowing the breaks do not al- ways go the other way. BASKETBALL Boys AMONG THE LYRICS sung by sport-writers at M. V. H. is one to the boys' basketball team. Its lines are inscribed in the wild accents of a hopeful peo- ple longing for a savior from the tyranny of the other tri-state teams .... The Pencemen this year were "jewels" in the making. Of the games played this year only four were won-but that does not tell how at the start of the season Coach Pence was faced with the loss of his captain: having as veterans upon whom he could rely only one. But painstakingly "Eddie" culled the subs of last year, looked over the sophomores and found three of var- sity calibre-and from these he molded the five that represented the Maroon and White on the court. Naturally they did not win many games . . but their old teacher, experience, was operating. Coach Pence uncovered his satellites one at a time it seemed. When he looked at the basketball situation last fall he found it wanting. He had Ashworth, And-Leffel had played a little. Then he found Kahn. But ineligibility forced him out. Finally Abell, former Junior High star came out, and at once seized a forward position. At last Knoop found himself on the court and then the score-keepers were busy marking down points for him. At the same time Scha- fer, also former J. H. S. star with Fes- senden and Bishop began finding the basket was not so hard to hit . . . but alas the season was over. However this cloud did have a silver lining . . all COACH FENCE Sixty-one will be back next year but three. GIRLS ALL SENIORS--that was the Redbird sextette at the start of - of the season, and all of them were "old timers". What could be better? The Redbirds started off like state champs. The list of victories began mounting. Then like a flash of lightning out of a clear sky came trouble . . no, troubles. First, Hovey, leading scorer and oiiensive mainstay at the time was lost to the squad because of eye trouble. Hocknian, her running mate, took over the scoring duties and Blackburn was moved to her post. T'hen Blackburn hurt her knee and for fear of increasingithe in- jury also left the team. Keck, inexperienced, was then moved up to the forward berth. WI ll ju But to climax the affair, Hockman also had her knee in- jured. The Redbird was a sick looking "bird" . . . Blackburn was called back to the team, and made a game stand of itf But the troubles had been great and the win column had as a result to surfer. So it is with pride that Mt. Vernon points to the season's record and there see only four losses. The girls did play great ball. They did fight. King, Esche, and Aud proved a guard tri- umvirate that brought fear into more than one opponent. Capt. Williams at the center position was always a bulwark of defense and offense. So Allgood and the Redbirds of '28-'29 do indeed deserve the praise and hon- ors bestowed upon them by the school and community! . . . What about next year. Perhaps it was not such a great calamity in a way to have the offensive drive of the team disrupted as it was, for out of it Allgood found two reliable for- wards in Keck and Blackburn. Allgood has always been at his best in developing guards . . . so Mt. Vernon will look forward next fall, not with trepidation, but with optimism ....

ATHLETIC CERTIFICATE Sixty-two YELL LEADER For once M. V. H. S. had no school elected yell leader. For some reason never determined, that phase of the athletics was never up to par. However, Everett Alldredge, cheerleader for the Hi- Y, took over the post at times, and did what little was done. He pre- sided at pep sessions and at the Pow-Wow. John Ofer served as an assistant, being the "Fighting Forty" yell leader. i . , QT'-,gl BASEBALL NOT SINCE 1926 has Mt. Vernon High been represented on the diamond. When Charles Hames was secured as Social Science instructor, Supt. 0'Bannon also secured a devoted fan and player of the "national pastime". A sport in the year of its inception usually does not do very well, yet for one to say that baseball at M. V. H. S. has not done very excellent- ly would show that that person did not know the true condition. When the call was made for candidates for the 'var- sity, only sixteen or seventeen answered --yet from these a strong nine was ob- tained. "Sandlot" ball had contributed a great deal to Haines in forming the team, so he took advantage of it and formed a truly formidable team. Most of the county schools also had teams, so it was not necessary for Mt. Vernon to play the larger Evansville schools, but rather play in its class. The result was in Mt. Vernon's favor in wins and losses. Mt. Vernon had three hurlers in COACH HAMES Ashworth, Wallace, and Oliver: a good catcher in Abell: an excellent infield composed of Wilderman, Cleveland, Floyd, and Redman. As outfiielders, Temple- ton, Oliver, Hix, Leffel, Weir, Hames and Peerman, Bishop, Johnson, Hendricks, Henderson, W. Causey, H. Curtis as utility . . . and practically all will be back! Mt.

This was his second year as captain and his third letter. Flor the first time Capt. Ashworth became an important cog in the offense--notcontenting himself with breaking up opponent's plays. He will be sorely missed next year, making it hard for someone. AUD . . . the leading scorer. Herschel al- ways played hard and was excellent in his floor Work. When it came to a tight place, "Audie" always came through . . . his iight- ing spirit contagious. LEFFEIL . . . the elongated one. Tall, the conventional center. But that was not all. He could hit the basket and back up the shots of team-mates. This was his last year. KNOOP . . . "Fritzy" did not iind him- self until the season was well under way, but when he did, "it rained field goals". His elusive, cool-headed style of play will not soon be forgotten. ABELL . . . an abundance of speed, a keen eye, a good disposition--but lots of fight-all qualities which made "Abe" a real forward. SCHAFER . . . "Squirt" could handle the ball . . . so he played fioor guard. He could always be depended upon to give all he had, and that with his basket eye, is it any wonder that he starred? FESSENDEN . "Broncho" could play either guard and was a sub that could take a regu1ar's place without hindering play. For smoothness in team play, he was hard to duplicate . . . and a good shot. BISHOP . . . "Bishv" was a fast little forward who was a Iirst stringer un- til Abell got "hot", His floor work always iitted in well, and he rarely missed when he shot. EILERT . . .

"Katink" was one of the best captains M. V. H. S. has had. Faithful, reliable, a devotee of the game. One will not soon forget the way "Ka- tink" came through in the pinches . . . a good captain! KING . . . commonly called "Lunie". She has certainly been one of the best guards M. V. H. S. has ever produced. NVhen others thought the game lost and gave up, "Lunie" fought on and played a hard game to the very end. HOCKMAN . . . "Le" through it all always wore a smile that oftimes cheered her mates on. As "Le" leaves the castle, the entire school will say farewell to a. truly hard fighting forward. AUD . . . There are no words which express the fine way Leota plays quite so well as those of her opponent in a game this year, namely: "She certainly is ai hard fighting, good-natured guard". ESCHE . . . "Minnie" has been on the squad since her freshman year. And in this her senior year she is playing her best. She would not let a pass slip by her and was always on the alert. HOVEY . . . "Jakie" has always tried to do her bit for M. V. H. S. although she knew that she was not physically able. She had a dead eye on the basket and while she did play, it meant victory. SCHNEIDER . . . Doris, the tall guard, is to be given the handshake for the fine way she has been faithful to the team, always ready to go in and fight . . . and how she could iight! WHIPPLE . . . Ella is also to be complimented for her sticking to the team, knowing she would not get to play much, but when she did, she fought hard and clean. KECK . . . "Bev" did not get to play until late in the season and for a. While she was bothered by inexperience, but she soon overcame that, and more than once she brought joy to the fans by her playing. DIETERLE . . . little "Butch" in. the times that she got to play showed that she knew the game and will be a star for M. V. H. S. soon!

N0 One of the best of many good golf stories told by Cyril Tolley concerns two players who sliced their drivers into the rough, and went in search of the balls. They searched for a long time without success. A dear old lady watched them with sympathetic eyes. At last, after the search had proceeded half an hour, she beckoned to them and said sweetly: "I hope I'm not interrupting gentlemeng but would it be cheat- ing lf I,told you where they were?" THE BOY WAS CORRECT A teacher in a local school was explaining sentence construction to her pupils. The topic went like this: "A predicate is an absolute necessity in a sentence, to make it complete. No sentence can be given without a predicate." An unusually bright boy argued the point with her, claiming such a thing was possible. "Very well, then," said the teacher, "give me a sentence without a predicate." "Thirty days," was the reply. She tafter the gamejz "I think they were horrible not to cheer the fellow with the white pantsg he carried the ball more tl1a.n anyone else." Sandy tto his wifelz "Stop sewing for a minute and lend me your thimble. Our guest wants a drink." First Angel: "How'd you get here?" Second Angel: "Flu." Would-be-suicide: "Don't rescue me, I want to die." "Well, you will have to postpone that--I want a life saving medal." Seventy-Ivo 'Hsu- ..f?.3. . F A,-,,f,1".."'
